    I try ignoring math as much as possible outside school, that's why I have 'em friends who like to calculate the angle from them and to the moon... :P
    You are in the wrong field then.

    Oh come now... we aren't all cryptographers, graphic programmers, physics programmers, and/or algorithm efficiency experts. There are plenty of fields of programming that don't rely heavily on math. Not that I am advocating it because a good math background always looks good when applying for programming positions.

    It's just... there are programmers that are math experts... and there are programmers that teach at community colleges.

    To be honest, I remember a lot of math by writing simple programs that use the math. Just do the same thing.
